This pattern allows a user to search or filter a list of items that have been returned by the system, for instance looking for only pubs or properties in a certain postcode that are in a list of properties. This is similar to search, but the user will already have been presented with a list of results that they want to reduce.

@stevenaproctor We're using this approach to refine results where usual closed checkbox filtering isn't appropriate, the prototype should be out for testing in the coming weeks. This UI is for an internal HMRC system fyi.
